Not sure how many of you happened to catch the joint press release found on the breaking news page of this website.

Olympus, Panasonic and Sigma have joined together to allow online firmware updates for their lenses REGARDLESS OF CAMERA BODY that the lens is mounted on. For more details read:

Great news that makes it much easier to upgrade a Panny of Sigma lens mounted on an Olympus camera body.

Agreed!! This is a significant bit of news. There have been a lot of discussions on other forums regarding the future of the fourthirds system now that m43 has been announced. This press release, I think, makes a solid statement that fourthirds is a robust system and getting easier tobuy and use a wider variety of lenses without concern about firmware update issues.
